Susannah Barr Highlights

Get to Know Susannah:

Tell us about the first time you heard the term "Pickleball." How long was it before you decided to give Pickleball a try? Were you addicted from the start? I first heard about pickleball when I saw some courts in Washington State. I was interested from the beginning, but it was probably another couple of years before I went to try it. I loved it from the beginning! But I didn't start playing competitively for about a year.

Is Pickleball a family affair? Yes! Both me and my teenage son, Porter, play.

Best/favorite meal after a few games? I'm never going to say no to sushi.

What was your favorite sport as a kid? Why? Volleyball! Very much for the same reasons. There are a lot of strategies, and competition, and you are on a team with friends.
